Mexican Pile Ups

Today’s recipe is a twist on one of my family’s favorite meals, Hawaiian Haystacks.  Since my family loves them so much and also enjoys Mexican food, I thought a Mexican version would be fun for a change.

The base of this is a simple ground beef/tomato sauce.  Serve the sauce over rice along with the toppings of your choice.  I listed toppings I think would work, but I am sure you all can come up with even more.

  • ½ medium onion, diced
  • 1 lb. hamburger
  • 3 (8 oz.) cans tomato sauce
  • 1 pkg. taco seasoning
  • cooked rice (at least 4 cups)
  • Toppings Choices:
  • grated cheese

  • guacamole
  • sliced olives
  • crushed tortilla or corn chips
  • tortilla strips

  1. In a large skillet, brown the beef along with the onion. When beef is fully cooked drain off any grease.

  3. Serve the beef/tomato sauce over cooked rice and top with desired toppings. Serves 6.
